Happy Monday, yinz! Today’s #MERCHMONDAY involves one of my favorite – and most consistent – rappers out there. My dude 2 Chainz. Not only is his music fire, but he also knows what he’s doing when it comes to #MERCH. Unfortunately, the 2 Chainz Shop is currently unavailable, but when it’s live… it’s live. You can visit his actual site here in the meantime.
Since 2015 and around Christmas time, he’s been selling the Dabbing Santa sweaters where a handful of proceeds go to fundraisers and others in need. He’s raised well over $2 million from that #MERCH. So great. More info on that line of #MERCH here.
This past holiday season, he launched a new line of clothing. One was a Christmas sweater print inspired coaches TRAP jacket, which is what I purchased after a few glasses of wine in, obviously. Today is my first day wearing it, and I love it. It’s also the perfect day to wear this jacket since it’s raining in LA, and the material is made for such weather. Check out each individual image below to get a closer look.
Quality: When I first took it out of the package last night, it was a little stiff. So I hung it up over night, and luckily it softened. And as I mentioned before, it’s great material to wear in the rain. So far so good!
Design: Less is more when it comes to #MERCH. And this jacket fits that mold. The black exterior with the small white logo on the front and then the “sweater” print in black and light pink on the back is great. Perfect for men and women to wear. I will say though when I first saw the logo on the front, I thought it was misshapen. Then after a closer look and also seeing it on the back, I realized it’s a thumbs up. Phew. Didn’t want to have to send that back.
Cost: I paid about $50 for this jacket, and that included shipping and tax. I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of this, so I think it’s a all-in price.
Overall, I’ll continue to support 2 Chainz – both in the forms of concert tickets and #MERCH.
